This film is what movies should be about…!
I have viewed this marvelous film at least 2 dozen times. As with all great movies, you will always catch something “new” with each watching.
If you want to be charmed, enchanted, moved, and find yourself wishing…. This is a film you will cherish.
I won’t belabor more than others have written so well. It is a film that resides in my permanent library on my top shelf. When I watch it again, I find myself wishing that I knew the characters personally and somehow find that I do.
This film is one of the only that I esteem. It adds to your life. It hugs the heart and enriches who you are.
I want to thank all the marvelous actors. If they ever wondered why they chose their profession, this film is why.
200 years from now it will be loved and valued. The test of time is guaranteed with Fried Green Tomatoes!
Brings you in and for a moment you are no longer you.
So few movies have the ability to work the human magic that this film does. From the beginning you cringe, celebrate, heal, mourn, and realistically become a part of the lives of these people (I won’t say characters, but people as they become people and no longer actors / characters). Hating and loving the people, there is no way to watch Fried Green Tomatoes and not have it impact you. That is unless your heart is scarred and become calloused to the point where you don’t let anything in anymore.
The ins and outs, ups and downs… and oh yes.. the BBQ! It shape shifts you and draws you in. And for a moment of your life you are no longer you, but one of them. Just watch it. And if you would like to escape for 2 hours this is how you do it.
So Hollywood! Why won’t you, can’t you, make movies like this anymore? Its budget was 11 million and it grossed 13 times that much. I am sure it’s not the money that stops you. I am not sure you have the talent to make a movie with the magic and the power of FGT.
